    Quail farming tips

    Hi, fellow farmers! I'm a third-generation farmer following in the footsteps of my father and grandfather. My grandfather was a quail farmer, but not my dad. Now that I've inherited the family farm, however, I'm interested in backer-establishing quail on the farm. Right now, it's a 200-acre farm...

    Coughing / wheezing chicken - please help!

    Hello! I'm sorry to hear about your recent chicken troubles. No matter what it is, make sure to keep her quarantined until she is better. Make sure she has plenty of water and is not too cold nor too hot. Check in on her frequently, and if she gets any worse, try to take her to a vet. While it...

    A pair of problems

    Hello, and welcome to BYC! First of all, your second duck has bumblefoot, a relatively common infection in the pad of her foot. If this is pretty new and has not progressed too far, you can usually treat it by washing it, injecting an antibiotic into it, and keeping the bird in a clean...

    Chicken/Guinea compatibility

    While I have heard that guinea hens sometimes pick on chickens, I have had no personal experience with this topic. However, at the farm that I volunteer at, I know that the farmer had a guinea hen or two with his flock of 50+ chickens. They got along fine, and when the guinea hen eventually...

    Chicken vent - lice?

    Hello! This very well could be lice. Lice are commonly found in sparsely feathered areas, such as below the vent and under the wings. Lice leave scabs on the skin and masses of eggs at the base of small feathers. Since these eggs hatch fast and two lice can easily turn into way more, it is...

    One out of eight stopped laying! Can't figure out why!

    It might be stress, as that can sometimes affect a hen's egg-laying abilities. Also, although very rare, hens do occasionally stop laying for no apparent reason. This, however, is very unlikely. If it's been going on for a few months, I doubt she's egg-bound, although otherwise it would be a...

    cornish rock with bum leg

    Welcome to BYC! It's true that bum legs are more common in this breed. Is anything visibly wrong with the leg (bumblefoot, swollen, etc.)? Since this is probably caused simply by his body growing too fast for his legs, there's not really anything that you can do to cure it, but you can still...

    Need to find new home

    I can't take them, and don't know anyone who can, but if you really, really, really can't find another home for them, you could always give them to A Critters Chance, Inc.

    Ducks and ducklings need new home

    I can't take them, and don't know of anybody who can, but if you really can't find a home for them, you could give them to Catskill Animal Sanctuary, but try to find them a real home first.

    What can we feed to ducklings ??

    It sounds like your doing a pretty good job of feeding them yourself, although it would be better if they had some veggies and fruits, too. Although it would be ideal to feed them duck food, if you can't find any, I think that you'll be able to manage alright with feeding them like you are...
